Senior Developers are a mainstay of product teams and are expected to have prior experience using modern, agile software development practices. They will take responsibility for the design anddevelopment of applications, writing and maintaining efficient will work closely with product managers and architects to determine technical effort required for product features and be able to efficiently estimate and break work down into vertical Developers have a quality first mindset, ensuring they create efficient unit tests and work alongside testers to create rapid feedback loops. Although design and coding practices are a focal point of the role, developers will be expected to have 'T-shaped' skills, being able to turn their hands to the practicalities of testing, support and deployment., A Senior Developer will always look for ways to improve the efficiency of engineering practices, through methods such as pair programming, continual refactoring and feature toggling Senior Developers will not be afraid to explore new ways of working for the team to increase quality, stability and cadence of delivery. A Senior Developer works within product teams to:
Design and develop high quality products using modern engineering practices
Introduce techniques to ensure that high quality code can be delivered quickly and efficiently through automation and modern software engineering practices and tools, such as:
Effective branching strategies
Efficient, lean test automation frameworks
Utilising automated code scanning tools
Providing quick effective quality feedback
Ensure support items are rapidly triaged and managed
Work with DevOps engineers and test engineers to embed practices in the team which enable consistent, predictable, fully tested deployments
Directly lead and mentor developers and test engineers on all of the above
Aware of the importance of considering developing process efficiency and the common ways in which processes are optimised. Supports specific activities to improve development processes. Able to spot or identify obvious deficiencies.
Understands key principles of modern standards approach, how they apply to the work they are undertaking, and will apply under guidance.
Collaborates with others when necessary to review specifications and uses these agreed specifications to design, code, test and document programs or scripts of medium to high complexity, using the right standards and tools.
Translates logical designs into physical designs. Produces detailed designs, and documents all work using required standards, methods and tools, including prototyping tools where appropriate. Designs systems characterised by managed levels of risk, manageable business and technical complexity and meaningful impact. Works with well-understood technology and identifies appropriate patterns.
Able to build and test simple interfaces between systems, or can work on more complex integration as part of a wider team.
Identifies and engages with users or stakeholders to collate user needs evidence. Understands and defines research which fits user needs. Able to use quantitative and qualitative data about users to turn user focus into outcomes.
